Bellowhead :: Broadside

by

Trompet, madoline, banjo, clarinet, concertina, hobo, viool, doedelzak. Het maakt allemaal deel uit van het instrumentarium van de Britse big band Bellowhead. Ze maken er muziek mee die echt onmogelijk in woorden te vatten is. Folk? Jazz? Klassiek? Ja, en nog veel meer. Ze zijn Genesis en The Pogues ineen. Maar ook weer veel meer dan dat. Hun vierde studio-CD Broadside, wederom opgenomen met de legendarische producer John Leckie aan het roer, is hun meesterwerk. Zo origineel, zo gedurfd en toch o zo toegankelijk.

They’re the dazzling derring-do First Eleven (count them) of British folk. And following 2010’s hook-up with legendary producer John Leckie at Abbey Road for Hedonism, big band Bellowhead have recently got back together with the producer, this time in Rockfield studios in Wales. Here at the world’s first residential recording studio, and birthplace of countless classic albums since opening its doors in the mid Sixties, the band of remarkable fellows locked horns, strings and more besides to make their fourth studio album, Broadside, their hardest-hitting to date.
